Zero waste is a philosophy that is growing in popularity.
It is a lifestyle that focuses on dramatically reducing the amount of waste that hits the landfills, incinerators, or ocean by means of responsible consumption. The zero waste philosophy applies to travel as well.
And with our rate of garbage-producing habits, this is a welcome change. The total waste that we dump on our planet each year is staggering. Visit The World Counts to check out some jaw-dropping stats on this subject.
But the good news is, we want to change! And the travel industry is no exception. This year (2019) the world’s first zero-waste travel safari will kick off.
Introducing Natural Habitat’s zero-waste safari kicking off this summer in Yellowstone Country. From the moment you book your trip to the last day steps have been taken to reduce your footprint. Their goal is to set a new standard in the travel industry proving that is is possible to operate on a zero waste itinerary.
